Big Red Run 2015

Big Red Run 2015

In June, 2015 my wife, her friend Mary and I embarked on the 1200-km trip from Adelaide in South Australia to Birdsville in South-West Queensland, where I took part in the Big Red Run, a 6-day 250-km stage race, beginning and ending at the iconic Birdsville Pub:

  • Day 1: 42km
  • Day 2: 42km
  • Day 3: 42km
  • Day 4: 31km
  • Day 5: 84.39km
  • Day 6: 8km run to the pub

A big thank you to everyone who supported Team The Simpsons with donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Where is Birdsville?

On Saturday, 23 February, I will be at the start of an epic 200 miles / 330 km race over 7  days covering halfway across New Zealand’s South Island.

Lot’s and lot’s of time to think during those 6,7 or 8 hours runs.

The 25 million needlessly blind people living in the developing world will be on my mind for sure whilst I will enjoy some of the incredible scenery New Zealand’s South Island has to offer.
These people, living without access to proper and affordable eye health care, need our help the most.
Your support to help restore sight by donating to The Fred Hollows Foundation not only will encourage me to keep running but it will change lives for ever.My goal of $2,000 is a reflection of the 200 miles I will be racing in New Zealand  end of this month. Please click here to donate

You can follow my progress end of the month on the organisers Facebook page
Thank you very much for your support!
